A big thank-you to everyone who attended Watanic Bowmen’s annual Father’s Day Charity Shoot, and GSB for allowing us to have this weekend each year. Raffle prizes were made possible by: Patrice Bell, Mike May, Lamprey River Bowhunters, GSB, Hidden Valley Traditions, Wildlife Sport Outfitters, Big Al’s, and Silkscreen Graphics who designed our 1st Place Traditional t-shirts.
This year’s efforts raised $1,000 for the St James Food Pantry in Merrimack, NH.
Reagh Greenleaf, President
Coming up this next weekend, June 17th at the Merrimack location, Watanic invites all those that wish to compete in their Traditional Only State Shoot, also known as a Warrior Shoot, to be there with a quiver full of arrows and ready for fun. The Club has asked me to remind Olympic Shooters that their class shoots from the white stake, no the yellow.
This Annual even is an Annual Charity effort, the proceeds will be forwarded to the St. James Food Pantry in Merrimack, NH. There will also be a raffle for a dozen wooden arrows and a 3D target.
GSB will be also shooting a regular even on Sunday at the same location.
Need more info? Give Reagh a call at 424-7692.
Pemigewasset Valley Fish & Game Club has taken the shoot scheduled for June 11th. Make sure you update your calendars and come up for another great north country 3D shoot.
Congratulations to one of our Host Clubs, they now have a new website to better serve their Membership.
Access to the Lamprey River Home Page is now available here!
JOAD is a nationwide program of USA Archery that provides youth with ongoing archery classes that help them progress from beginner to advanced level archery, at their own pace.
Archery is where your child not only participates in a sport, they will develop strong problem solving skills, increase their concentration, build confidence and create friendships that will last a lifetime.
Big Al’s, in conjunction with the Boston Plumbers Union, has made 4 scholarships available for Youths that might not normally have access to this sort of opportunity. The advertisement cover letter is available here and contains additional information necessary to make an application for entry.
Jim and his group of volunteers at Chester Rod & Gun Club have put the effort into setting up and promising the Shoot is ON for this Sunday, April 2nd. It would be a shame to waste such an effort. In case you didn’t see the announcement on the Forums or our Facebook page, it it up to us to show CR&GC that we’re not afraid of a little snow either. See everyone tomorrow!
Unfortunately, Chester Rod & Gun Club has to cancel the upcoming shoot for 3/19/17 due to heavy snow effecting access to the Clubhouse and the course.
Take a look at our 2017 Shoot Schedule and plan your weekends accordingly. Everyone should note that we’ve had dates added for shoots at Pemigewasset Valley Fish & Game Club in Holderness, NH. We hope to update and provide directions soon.
Welcome, although a little late, to the 2017 GSB 3D Archery season. This has the promise of being an interesting year for many, and I don’t mean just on the 3D course! We’ve had several shoots so far and as it looks like this should be a very good year. The first meeting of the GSB Board and Host Clubs was this past Thursday and we’re welcoming Pemigewasset Valley Fish & Game Club into the fold. They are a bit further north than many of us are accustomed to, but when you get right down to it, another Club gives us variety and exposure. Keep en eye out for the updated shoot schedule, it should be posted sometime by the middle of February.
Finishing up our GSB Shooting Calendar for 2016 will be the event at Country Pond Fish & Game Club this Sunday morning, September 11th.
Have you picked up a raffle ticket yet? If not, you should bring along an extra $5 for a chance to win a $599 shopping credit at Big Al’s Archery! Not needing any equipment? There’s a cash option available for $400 if that’s your pleasure. You can’t win if you don’t buy a ticket.
I should have the SOY points figured out shortly after I get the scores from CPF&GC after the shoot. The results will be posted here and on our Facebook page.
Thank you in advance for sharing this past season with the GSB members and guests!
